John B. Sargeant Sr. Park (Part 2)
My father bought me a kayak 2 years ago for my birthday. I never had the opportunity to take it out, because I was consistently consumed with life’s obligations (master’s degree and children, to name a few). Last weekend I had the privilege of taking my kayak out to John B. Sergeant Sr. Park. I have been there several times before, but this time I was able to explore with my own kayak. If you have never been kayaking, it is a really convenient place to learn the basics and do it for the first time. You don’t have to plan the trip (drop off and pick-up points, etc.). You don’t need your own kayak or life-preserver. Heck, you don’t even need to know where you’re going or what you are doing, because they provide you a map, and teach you some essential oar strokes. All you really have to do is schedule an appointment with Canoe Escape, and pick between a 2-hour, 4-hour, and 6-hour trip. You can even change your mind while kayaking and end at an earlier destination for a refund of the difference in cost. At the end of the kayak / canoe trip, they (Canoe Escape employees) will pick you up at your destination in a school bus and drive you back to your start-point where your car was parked.
